I’m a junior attorney, and my goal is to work in-house for a professional sports team (preferably an NBA, MLB or NFL team) or a record label, but of course these positions are highly-coveted. I started down the traditional path of working in biglaw (NYC) to receive the necessary training and experience while also trying to build relationships. However, biglaw really isn’t for me, and I’m exploring regional firms in Boston. Is it still possible to break into the sports/ent. industry? Any advice?

I am burnt out of recruiting. I want to make a switch but the thought of starting over comp wise makes me feel sick and is not feasible at this stage in my life. I’m currently a senior TA partner making $125k. I don’t expect to walk into a new role role making that much, but I also can’t afford to cut my salary in half. Are there any positions in HR that would be a good transition and might have me at a decent salary?

Hello everyone, I have an initial screen with a recruiter this week for a role on the AWS ISV partner sales team. The title indicates it’s a “senior manager” level which would be a step down from where I am now (Director), but I’m willing to have the conversation since I’m very interested in the company. What level can I expect this to be at (I’m not familiar with the L5s, L6s etc. leveling), what salary range is reasonable for that level (OTE, base and commissions)? I’m in NYC/10 YOE.
